Vanuatu's Minister for Lands says coalition govt remains stable

6:51 am on 11 June 2013

Vanuatu's Minister for Lands, Ralph Regenvanu, says the coalition government remains stable in support of the Prime Minister Moana Carcasses Kalosil.

Local reports continue to filter through of plans by the opposition to move a motion of no-confidence against Mr Carcasses who was elected in March.

However the Prime Minister has disputed reports that a number of government MPs have indicated support for the motion.

Parliamentary committees are being constituted this week and MPs throughout the country are expected to converge on Port Vila for the process.

Mr Regenvanu says while the MPs are in town, the government will on Wednesday have its second caucus meeting.

"And all indications are very good. The government is more solid than it was when it was established and we have now gained additional numbers since Prime Minister Moana was first elected. So things are looking more solid than they have been."
